Dublin GAA star Philly McMahon's touching gesture as he marries girlfriend in stunning wedding

The newlyweds were joined by a number of a high profile names as they became man and wife. Dublin GAA star Philly McMahon made a touching gesture as he married his girlfriend Sarah Lacey in a stunning wedding over the weekend.

The All-Star footballer and the PR guru said "I do" in SS Mary and Laurence Church in Crookstown, Athy, Co Kildare before a lavish reception in Kilkea Castle. Philly looked as dapper as ever in a three piece black tuxedo which included a velvet jacket, round waist coat and cropped trousers.

And in a lovely and heartwarming gesture, he paid tribute to his late brother and late father by adding a picture of them to his cufflinks. His look was finished off with a dickie-bow and a pair of loafers. The bride wore a floor-length lace gown featuring a deep 'V' front, RSVP Live reports.

Sarah let her long curly brunette locks flow over the dress while a veil descending from the top of her head right down the back of the gorgeous creation. The newlyweds were joined by a number of a high profile names as they became man and wife, including Dean Rock, Kevin McManamon, boxer Bernand Dunne and Dancing With The Stars favourite Denis Bastick.

His Dublin teammates Paddy Andrews, Bernard Brogan, Darren Daly and Paul Flynn were also in attendance. Team captain Stephen Cluxton, Eoghan O'Gara, Brian Fenton and Ciaran Kilkenny also toasted to the happy couple. Guests were treated to a five star dinner before entertainment from a magician. Philly then wrapped up the night with a saxophone performance on stage.

The couple got engaged last December. The seven time All-Ireland winner popped the question under the Northern Lights during a romantic holiday to Iceland. "She said yes," he simply said as he shared a snap of them wrapped up together in the cold following the proposal.

RTE presenter Kathryn Thomas tied the knot to restaurateur Padraig McLoughlin at the same venue back in August of this year. She was also joined by number of familiar faces including Sile Seoige, Thalia Heffernan and Eoghan McDermott for the big day.
